Manuel was a limousine driver before joining the Ohio Basement Authority Team. He feels fortunate to work with an excellent supervisor here at OBA, and to have the opportunity to gain knowledge and become proficient in his position. Every day, he looks forward to helping people with problems in their homes. As a Field Supervisor, Manuel works with our installation crews to ensure quality craftsmanship and job safety while providing remarkable customer service to homeowners.
Outside of work, Manuel likes to play sports like soccer and basketball, attend church, and spend time with his family. He believes his family and friends would say he is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and faithful.
Manuel thinks the greatest lesson he has learned working here so far is how to successfully lead a team toward a common, meaningful goal.
They moved into their house not long after it was built almost 40 years ago, but homeowners in Westerville, OH, were ready to put their home on the market. Before doing so, the owners knew they must complete various home improvement projects. This included addressing the partial crawl space just off of the basement.
Even though the owners had some boxed items stored in this space, it certainly was not an ideal storage area. Along with debris strewn about the crawl space, this area also featured plastic liner that failed to cover the dirt floor and nasty insulation that was falling victim to mold and moisture. The homeowners worried these conditions would not only affect the health of the home, but their ability to sell it as well.
After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority through our website, the homeowners were eager to contact us for assistance in transforming the problematic crawl space. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who recommended the perfect solution.
One of our crews, led by Foreman Manuel Inguil, first removed the debris and other nuisances from the crawl space. Then, they encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. The thick and durable CleanSpace liner fully seals the crawl space from the earth. It also prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and it helps insulate the crawl space. CleanSpace is tough enough to crawl on, and it helps create a healthy storage area. Its durability is further enhanced by the thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process.
The homeowners are glad the crawl space, as well as the rest of the home, will now be healthy for the next owners because of this reliable repair solution.
After working with Ohio Basement Authority on several of his other rental properties, a homeowner was eager to contact us again when he noticed health issues with a house he owns in Dublin, OH. The owner noticed the crawl space was full of debris and failing insulation and floor matting. These conditions can greatly affect the health of the rest of the home, and the owner wanted to make sure it would be an ideal living environment for his future tenants.
After contacting us and consulting with the same trusted inspector, Victor Golowin, the owner was eager for us to transform the nasty crawl space. After the debris and older insulation was removed, one of our experienced repair crews, led by Foreman Manuel Inguil, encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner.
Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace is thick and durable. It completely isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. It is tough enough to crawl on, and its durability is further enhanced by thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process. This makes the crawl space an ideal area for storage.
The owner was happy to call on Ohio Basement Authority again, and he is pleased with the outcome of the repair project.
Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Bloomingburg, OH, wanted to complete various repair projects around the home. Even though they never went into the crawl space, they wondered if this area under the house was affecting the health of the rest of the home.
After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they contacted us to see how we could help them. One of our inspectors assessed the condition of the crawl space and recommended some of our trustworthy repairs.
The day our crew arrived to install these reliable solutions in the nasty crawl space, they found the area had flooded with water from heavy rains. The crew first pumped the water out of the crawl space and then began to waterproof it with the SmartPipe drainage system and SmartSump sump pump. If any water seeps inside the crawl space, the SmartPipe system will catch it and direct it to the SmartSump. From there the water is pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home.
The crawl space also was encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It also serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.
Additional installations included an IceGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line, and the Turtl access well that replaced the leaking window.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions have improved the health of the crawl space and their home.
Homeowners in Marysville, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 30 years ago. During the last few years, the owners have noticed potential structural issues getting worse. One section of a foundation wall was cracking and appeared to be tilting inward.
Along with the safety and structural integrity of their living environment, the owners were concerned these problems could impact their ability to sell the home some day. They wanted to fix these issues once and for all, so they started to research how to best address these problems. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them.
As he used a laser level and his keen, experienced eye, Inspector Travis Burkart pointed out that the north wall was showing signs of settlement and tipping. He then presented the homeowners with several repair options that would stabilize the wall and prevent any further damage.
The owners were then eager for Foreman Manuel Inguil to lead his crew in installing several PowerBrace beams. These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the wall as level as possible, and the bottom of the beams are anchored to the floor. These heavy-duty beams are zinc-plated beams so they are protected from corrosion and damage, unlike the other metal and wooden supports that were failing to stabilize the walls. Another unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the wall over time.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair solution has helped ensure their home’s structural stability for many years to come.
